  • 1 lb Beef Shank or your choice of beef cut into strips
  • 1 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup whole carrot cut julienne
  • 1 cup mushroom
  • 1 cup mixed color bell pepper cut julienne
  • 1/2 cup scallion cut julienne
  • ½ cup onion cut into chunks
  • 2 cloves whole garlic sliced into pieces
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil

For Beef

  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcheshire
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • Oil for frying


  • In a frying pan or cast iron add oil to medium heat. Add beef strips and saute until beef becomes dark brown.
  • After sauteing beef strips, add 1 cup of water and cover the skillet with foil and put into the oven on 350 degrees for 30 mins or until beef is tender.
  • In a skillet or wok add oil and saute garlic first for a few seconds, then add mushrooms, carrots, onions, bell peppers, and broccoli and continue stirring. (No more than 2 mins)
  • Add cooked beef to the pan with veggies and stir continuously under medium to high heat.
  • Add sesame seed oil and hoisin sauce and stir constantly for a few seconds.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • After stir frying the veggies add the scallions
  • Garnish with sesame seed (Optional)


NB: If you choose to use beef sirloin that's fine. It is easier to cook and you won't need to put it in the oven.
You can add or subtract the veggies, some people like to add zucchini. 
If you don't have hoisin sauce, you can make your own sauce.
